Macroblade 100 3WD is one of the fastest skates with superior lateral support. The higher boot design works well with the 3x100 set up to release one's inner racer. This skate is a great bridge product between the race and recreational skate worlds. Racers get to experience a higher boot with the speed they are familar with and rec skaters experience speed with the higher support they are familiar with. Seasoned skaters seem to gravitate to this model because of its overall support, speed, comfort and 3WD frame. High end components, high-quality engineered mesh uppers and a very secure closure system with speed lacing make this a stylish, fast and great choice for someone serious about skating but does not want a lower profile race boot. Brake is on the skate.
